MAJOR UPDATE - Customization Explorer, Selfie Maker, Trading Cards & Soundtrack

Hello runners.

Today we are launching 4 major updates to Dino Run DX:

1) Customization Explorer : finally, a way to choose hats and colors without clicking 100 times. Set favorites, go back in your recent history, view by collections, and more... carpel tunnel BE GONE! You can access this on the title screen in the main options (customize & share).



2) Selfie Maker: previously called the avatar exporter. Make portraits of your favorite customizations and save them to your hard drive - share with friends, post to social media & make us famous! :) You can access this from the camera icon in the customization explorer.



3) Trading Cards: At long last! Some extremely juicy new cards, backgrounds + avatars await you.



4) Soundtrack: Now available for a stupidly low price! Get all your favorite dino tunes, including the halloween ones of course.



Keep on runnin...

Steam Multiplayer Has Launched, No Sign-Up Required

Hello runners,

We know people have been asking about this for a while, sorry it took so long... you can now enter Multiplayer with your Steam account, no sign-up required. Make sure you are updated to the most recent version (1.33) to use it.

For XGEN account users, you now have the choice to auto-login with the last username and password you used. Another feature that's been asked for quite often.

IMPORTANT - if you already use an XGEN account, don't use the steam auto-login - just log in the same way you always did before.

See you in the races!

-Miles @ Pixeljam

About This Game

DINO RUN DX is an ongoing evolution of the classic prehistoric multiplayer racing game. Control your iconic raptor through an endless assortment of procedurally generated landscapes and outrun the ever-approaching WALL OF DOOM. Will you end up one of the millions of doomsday casualties, or will you ESCAPE EXTINCTION?

Featuring:
-A unique experience every time you play... no two levels are ever the same.
-3 major single player gameplay modes: CHALLENGE, PLANET D and SPEEDRUN (currently 24 speedruns with more coming soon).
-Realtime multiplayer with chat, matchmaking and more unique levels to race in. Climb the ranks and show your dominance!
-Choose from a staggering number of hat and color combinations to hone your look... unlock even more hats by completing game milestones.
-FREERUN MODE: turn off the doom, chat with other players during actual gameplay, spawn boulders and npc dinos, roleplay.... do what you want!

How is DX different than previous versions of the game?
If you've only played the web version from years ago, you'll find DX is a dramatic improvement with more levels, hats and gameplay options. If you've played Dino Run SE, the major differences right now are completely redone backgrounds and an extra layer of polish, true fullscreen mode, controller support, steamworks integration, improved multiplayer security, and a few more hats and colors to choose from. We are also currently working on even more improvements to the game and will continue to roll out new features as long as there is interest and support. This is our pledge to you! More info on upcoming features can be found at http://www.pixeljam.com/dinorun.

Fun Facts:
-The original web version has been played over 100 million times (source: Mochibot)
-Pixeljam, the creators of Dino Run, have made over 20 games since 2006.
-Dino Run helped pioneer the "runner" genre of games, before it was popularized on mobile and started to truly suck.
-Dinosaurs did not actually wear hats, but there are tiny traces of them in the plastic tightening straps on all baseball caps.

+ The concept itself is great. You (and all the other dinosaurs) are trying to outrun the meteor explosion that caused them all to go extinct.
+ Gameplay is very basic but a lot of fun at the same time. You are a raptor and try to get to the end of the stage before the ever approaching "wall of doom" from the meteor impact catches up to you. There are tons of obstacles that get in your way while you race to the end.
+ Minimalistic but very creative procedurally generated levels with branching pathways
+ Many "hats" or costumes that pay tribute to a TON of different popular indie games. Super Meat Boy, Shovel Knight, Fez, Bit Trip Runner, Castle Crashers, Battleblock Theatre, VVVVVV, etc.
+ Online multiplayer

- Fairly short in length / amount of content

~ Not many people playing online (I wasn't able to find a game)

I quit running away from my problems in real life and decided to run away from them in Dino Run DX. Good move on my part.

A great game!
Not the best investment for $5.99 but hey, it's a classic!
Brought back so many memories!

One suggestion would be to unlock hats and colours rather then just using them, or even adding in dinos by reaching a certain time or score!
Something like that would be great!

Overall a great game that im bound to be caught playing in class!
9/10 would play again!

Classic. Remember all that time you spent running away from your problems? Well, luckily, now you can do it, and have just as much fun!


Ive played this since it came out as a flash game, so its sentimental to me. Ive spent years cheating death and HichHiking on spaceships
10/10 would doomsurf again

Cons: None

Buying this game essentially means just buying the single-player experience (which is not much different from the web/SE versions) and empty chatrooms with no one to race in multiplayer. The game handles badly, with significant slowdowns as the races progress. Plus if you happen to be on the bad side of the globe (timezone-wise) you end up dealing with security certificate errors. So much for the security improvements over the previous versions.

I started playing this game from a young age I can't even remember and I have always gone back to it, over the years I have seen it improve massively and I'm proud to say that I love this game, it's extremely joyful and entertaining for me and for many others. There are many things I love about this game, but something that is worth a mention is the hugely addictive multiplayer. I have always found the community, even it's changed as I have played, a delight to talk to and play with. I massively recommend this game to honestly anyone. Please pick it up. I beg you!

I've known this game since I was 10 years old and I'm still playing it now even though I'm 18. Really the game that defined the running genre.

iirc this is the game that replaces "f*** you" in chat with "Lets Cuddle"

Its pretty simple, but very well made. You do everything dinosaurs do, including: running, eating and becoming extinct. Its great.

Devs sent keys to everyone who bought the game. I think I actually got it on a free day many many years ago and they sent me a key anyway. They are the real heros.

Also devs if you're listening, hit us up with some splitscreen and controller support. That would be great.
